Question about Graco MetroLite LE Compact Stroller in Samba - 6125SMB Standard Stroller

Graco Metrosport stroller Model No 611198E

This is a six-year old stroller by Graco. The push handle is fixed (and adjusted for height) through a plastic knuckle joint to the frame of the stroller. The plastic adjustable joint has broken on both sides of the handle. Can I obtain a replacement pair of joints? I have had it welded - but the welding did not hold. Can the plastic be glued - maybe using a plastic model cement? I'd really appreciate your suggestions.

I'm sorry to have to tell you this, but Graco has refused a request to sell parts for that model of stroller. They didn't come straight out and say it, but the suggestion was that I should "buy a new model" of stroller. I was also unable to find any aftermarket company that sells replacement parts for that stroller. In fact, it appears that no aftermarket companies claim to sell parts for Graco products, so I'm guessing that they're worried about being sued. A suggestion for a workable solution to replace these joints would be to drill through these tubes and put a bolt through the holes and hold it in place with a wingnut. This would allow you to fasten it securely, yet be able to collapse the handle when you need to. However, to answer your question, yes this could be glued. Go to Home Depot and look in the paint department for the "adhesives" section. You're looking for a two-part epoxy that's made especially for plastics. Asking an employee for "plastic epoxy" might help if you don't find it. You mix the two parts of the epoxy glue together, apply this to both pieces and stick them together. I prefer the type that sets up in 5 minutes, since you then don't have to parts together for a long time before they are stuck firm. I believe the product is fully cured in 24 hours, but follow all package directions. this 2-part epoxy is probably the strongest type of adhesive you could use for this repair. Hope this helps, though I'm sorry for the bad news with graco. :\

How about drilling two small holes through the joint and fixing it with a couple of self tapping screws?

I need the handlebar wires that make the height adjustable handle work on the quinny buzz 3 any ideas?


Hi - The wire from inside the Quinny Buzz handlebar isn't available as a seperate spare part item. To replace it, the entire handlebar is required, which comes complete with the inner workings. How old is your Buzz? If it is under 2 years old, please contact your retailer with your proof of purchase to make a claim under the terms and conditions of the warranty. If it is over 2 years old or you do not have proof of purchase please contact the customer service department for your country - for the UK this is 01284 413 141 Mon-Fri 8.30-4.30

How to attach graco car seat safely to the duoglider


Yes. You will need to make sure you have one of the two tray tables that attach to the seats. Without this, you cannot use the Graco infant seat.

If you have the tray table, ensure it is attached firmly and properly to the stroller frame. Attach the Graco infant carseat facing the rear until you hear that it snaps in. This process is similar to snapping the carseat into the base that is in your car.

I don't know how to close the Graco duoglider


I believe that this model has a little switch built into the handle bar (just underneath the handle bar you hold onto when you are pushing the stroller). You turn, slide or push this little switch at the same time as pushing the handlebars forward. Be firm and this will start the folding process.

Hi,

there is a board in the back of the stroller covering with the straps attched to it. Peel back the velcro and you can access the straps from there.
